[PATCH 0/7] ensure arguments to request_irq and free_irq are compatible

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

As far as I can see, free_irq does nothing if its second argument is not
the same as the last argument of the corresponding call to request_irq.
These were found using the semantic match below (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/).
This semantic match finds a number of other cases, but they are mostly in
platform driver probe functions, so the functions should be just converted
to use devm functions, eliminating the need to call free_irq at all.

// <smpl>
@r exists@
expression e,e1,e2,e3,e4,e5;
type T;
position p1,p2;


@bad1 exists@
position r.p1,r.p2;
expression e1,e2,e3,e4,e5;

request_irq@p1(e1,e2,e3,e4,(void *)e5)

@bad2 exists@
position r.p1,r.p2;
statement S;

if (request_irq@p1(...)) S else { <+... free_irq@p2(...); ...+> }

@script:python depends on !bad1 && !bad2@
p1 << r.p1;
p2 << r.p2;

// </smpl>
